counting down to christmas. [free printable advent calendar]

my head is slowly filling with all things festive. spending every day happily stitching piles and piles of toy sacks and stockings, browsing online for perfect presents [and I've even found myself seeking out a Christmas movie or two to play in my workroom as the sewing machine hums].

i started on some of my favourite festive faffs this week too, the cake is baked and stashed away, a new fragrance blend for a few christmas candle gifts and finished a simple paper advent calendar design.

little white envelopes to fill with chocolate coins and hang from string.

i've made a couple of printable versions. feel free to download and enjoy.

no need for a how to, simply print off the templates [there's two to a page so only 12 sheets of paper are needed], cut the solid lines and fold the dotted ones. a dab of glue or sticker is enough to secure the envelope for filling.

just 41 sleeps to go. the countdown is ON.
